Chinese New Year - China

Chinese New Year - China

Join in the celebrations of Chinese New Year. By far the most significant festival on the calendar, the special time is celebrated by Chinese communities the world over with gift-giving, dragon dancing, parades and general merriment.

As one of China's most important celebrations, families travel from near and far to reunite for Chinese New Year. Gifts are given, houses are cleaned, people cut their hair and new clothes are worn; all in an attempt to remove any of the bad luck from the previous year and make way for good luck. Look out though, it’s bad luck to clean on New Year’s Day itself! Wherever you are in China, you’re likely to see some display of joyous celebration. Join in and have fun!
